Oh, it's a cute tower defense management game! Intuitive and fun, would like to see a full campaign

This was a fun and cute little Tower Defense game! A genre I'm not really fond of, but that I could definitely enjoy in this game, which is a really good sign! The audio is just delightful, both the music and the sound effects are super gameboy-ish, and although the graphics fall a bit behind in that sense, they still resemble those of a GB game! The gameplay is simple and easy to understand, although there is a lot of information to be learned at once, right at the beginning, which confused me a bit!

All in all, a fun experience, great job! :)

Thanks for playing!

Nice game and idea! Well done!

PS: Feel free to try my game out! Cheers!

Awesome idea, great implementation! I also really like the soundtrack!
Personally I would have choosen a different color than red. Something that is a little softer to the eye. But otherwise, really good game!

Developer

I chose red because it was one of the first pallettes on lospec, and while I don't agree personally(I love red) I'll keep it in mind for later projects :)

That is a really neat game. Really interesting to see a tower defense as a Game Boy-ish game. And I like the idea of using animals instead of military weapons and towers. Good job !

Developer

Thanks for playing!

Really interesting idea! The HUD was a bit confusing for me, but once a got the hang of it, I enjoyed a lot. Tower defense games with game boy limitations are a really challenging thing to develop, I've been there too! So, I think you did a great job!

Developer

Thanks a lot! I kinda left out one limitation(only 40 sprites on screen) but I did my best!

Very nice tower defense game, the animals and enemies look very good for 8*8 pixels size! Well done. Also nice music and sounds (but it was a bit loud by default, volume setting in menu could be added maybe)

Developer

Thanks for playing! I have heard that it's a bit  loud by other players too so I might fix that in a post jam version :^

Submitted

What a neat genre mashup idea! I love that each of the animals are given their own name. The title screen is robust too, though you may want to thicken the selection border, it was a bit difficult to see. 
There are a few quality of life changes I'd like to see, such as a way to feed all of your animals at once. The cursor movement can also be pretty tedious: there's too many blank tiles that you have to scroll past to get anywhere useful.
But I enjoyed playing it!

I should add a cursor speed button that toggles between 2 speeds to adress that issue :)

Submitted

That was AMAZING!

I love Tower Defense Games :>  

Developer

Thanks for taking intrest!

This game is so cute, loved the pixel art and music

Thanks a lot for playing!

I really enjoyed this game! The Hunger and Level bars were confusing to me to begin with, but I managed to work them out after a while. I really like that you have to keep all your units fed (although it's a bit tedious to have to manually feed them with game boy controls). I adore that all my pets have their own names. The unicorn, needs to have a quieter/less repetitive sound, this put me off wanting to use it.  All in all great game and I would love to play again if you continue to work on it.

Developer

Thanks for playing! I should've heard that the unicorn was annoying :<

Enjoyed playing this tower defence.  The unicorn sound could do with being turned down to match the volume of the other sound effects.  Would also appreciate having a button to feed everything that could be fed so that I could start the next round quicker.  Overall, had fun!

Developer

Yeah I should've though of that :)

Submitted

I really like the colors and the mechanics! It takes a minute to get used to the controls, but if you played tower defense games before you're good to go!

Developer

Thanks a lot! I was inspired a bit by advanced wars for the cursor :)

Submitted

Cute graphics and I really like the soundtrack :)

Developer

Yeah Dippy0615 did a great job :)

Submitted
